Rubio, McCain, Hatch ready to negotiate on pathway to citizenship
The Hill ^ | 11/13/12 | Cameron Joseph

Posted on 11/14/2012 2:46:33 AM PST by ding_dong_daddy_from_dumas

Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), three key Republican players on immigration, told The Hill they're ready to start working on broad-based reforms next year that could include a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants currently in the United States.

Hell, the number they were feeding us a decade ago was 12 million.

Cowards, the whole lot of them...now we know who was talking to Biden before the election about coming around to the Rat way of thinking.

BTW, I keep seeing this 11 million number tossed over and over again out by the MSM...I guess no new illegal aliens have crossed the border since 2000, when this number was first derived. Try 30 million now.

It wouldn’t surprise me if it was 5 times that. There’s a reason why DirectV, Comcast, Dish and half of the AM radio stations are broadcasting in Spanish now, and it isn’t because of naturalized and natural born hispanics already here..

The biggest betrayal in all this is that the 11 million illegals number is complete bullshit.

And the number is guaranteed to grow like crazy

Term limits would have saved the republic.

What is taking place (imho) is an invitation for a complete and full invasion force to come. The applause from our enemies is deafening. How fast can a nation commit suicide? One for the History books. Am doubting the History will be written though. The victors write the History and then rewrite it.

If you really wanted to toss this into a mess...agree to a pathway to citizenship...for what is projected to be only eleven million, and limit it to precisely that number. The longer in country...the higher the odds you get accepted, but you have to prove that fact. The guys after 11 million? They get a 100-day pass, and then need to leave the country. Anyone hiring those folks....goes to jail....real jail (nothing less than 30 days for anyone who hires illegals with the new deal).

Let them all become tax paying citizens... declare non- hispanic whites the minority with all of it’s freebies and special protections. Establish an organization for the advancement of white people.

The Republicans want to redouble their efforts to commit political suicide.

Enfranchising millions of new Democratoc voters is the ticket to a GOP revival!

LOL! These guys are smoking crack.

Citizenship => SS Card => legitimate employment => Taxes => Revenue.

None of these RINO’s care if these people are illegals, they want to 1. convince the Hispanics that the GOP are ok guys to sign up with, and 2. take a chuck out of the underground economy.

I’m a supporter of Gov. Palin, but this has always been my one bone to pick with her. Even after the election, when McCain took to wearing the GOPe’s new favorite amnesty figleaf of ‘secure the border first, before we even discuss anything else’, Gov. Palin proclaimed on Fox News that there wasn’t the least bit of difference between her and McCain’s position on this. She even helped to get him reelected.

And now, we’ve got him leading on amnesty again.

Been saying that since he was elected here. He is a bush clone in this respect and this pandering will garner us nothing at all with the hispanics. Rubio didnt win here by being Cuban, he won because we gave Crist the boot & no viable candidates emerged to defeat him

Came to a conclusion a long time ago. Issues are issues, the laws are the laws, except when a new law suits our elected or our activist judges. The People’s voice (aka Citizens) means nothing to those who are supposed to support the Constitution and serve the People, and the People (aka Citizens) have been branded by the state federals as the enemy. Mind boggling. Pardon me, Jim, if I were dead I would be spinning in my grave, and that would be on a good day. These bad days ... rev up spin in our Founders and those Who Served graves. The up side for our enemies is most of them have yet to fire more shots. When did America surrender? I do want to see the surrender document.

I'm not sure about that. An ignorant, uneducated electorate begets ignorant, uneducated politicians. Term limits would just ensure we get a new group of ignorant, uneducated politicians.

I don’t want a bunch of illegals being made citizens to benefit the political class. If they’re going to sell the right to be an American I want in on some of the cash.

How about the auction off citizenship to the highest bidders and use the money to buy down the debt?

Now they sell off citizenship for the price of getting their little political butts reelected. How charming. /s

Allowing illegals citizenship has NOTHING to do with taking in people yearning to be free. It has to do with cheap political whores buying future votes.

“We” meaning Americans, created this mess with illegals on our Southern border. Our federal and state governments for years looked the other way with a wink and a nod. In many cases encouraged workers to pour into this counrty to take jobs we didn’t want. Businesses and agriculture were happily their willing accomplices.

The “illegals” responded and eventually brought their families and planted roots here. That trickle of workers quickly turned into a flood.

Now, we want them out..... Arrest them, lose the home they bought, leave their possession and everything they worked for, have their kids ripped out of school and deport the bunch....

We clearly have the legal right, they are here illegally, right? We didn’t make them come, they snuck here in the middle of the night, in many cases paid a bounty to a smuggler, risked their life in the desert to be here.

So great PooBah of pure conservative values, now that you have the power and the law on your side, what would you do to solve the issue? You’ve got the guy’s with the guns, tell them what to do.....

Tell me what solution would allow you to look in the mirror each morning, look your children in their eyes, remain a follower of Christ and uphold the constitution.

The issue must be addressed, it’s outcome and resolution has huge political implications for the USA.

Rubio is just showing leadership by tackling the issue. Unfortunately, he teamed with a RINO hack, McLame.....But reality is that a junior senator has to team with a senior senator. I’m sure, most of the senators ran and hid from Rubio when they saw him tackling this issue. Bunch of pansies.....

I've been saying all along that they never had any intent on winning. Even as the minority party they still have plenty of money and power. Besides if they actually fixed anything, what would they use to threaten you into voting for them next time?

The most disgusting pat is the fact that these bottom feeders see themselves as being on par with our nation's founders.

NO! NO! NO!

We’ve been here before, and the gut feeling of the country hasn’t changed.

We are fed up with the elitist legislative scum who spit on the Constitution and rule of law, in favor of expedience and ‘go along to get along’ legislative actions.

We want principled legislators who truly represent the will of their constituents.

Amnesty, path to citizenship, all that is garbage.

The ONLY path to citizenship is: Deport, get in line, do it right.

There is NO way that an illegal magically becomes legal. THEIR FIRST ACTION IN AMERICA WAS A CRIME. There is no changing that!

This burns my britches. If there was ever a cause to get behind, it would be reform at the ballot box. These guys want to usher in the collapse of America which is what will happen with a corrupt election process and chain migration of immigrants who came illegally and will continue to come for freebies.

Poor McCain probably needed someone to get a fire extinguisher to put out the flames from his shoe soles created by his running so fast to get to his friends across the aisle to get amnesty for illegals going.

To those advocating for Rubio for 2016 — pay attention! He isn’t the conservative YOU think he is.

Invite 50 million Mexicans into America and you’ll end up with Mexico, including the drug cartel wars. I’m starting to favour the idea of Azatland. Let’s give them California, New Mexico, Nevada and Arizona. America keeps Texas. You lose a net of 2 Democrat Senators, including Harry Reid, as well as crazy McCain. You also lose a net of 55 guaranteed Democrat electoral college votes and a huge Democrat advantage in House seats. Most importantly, you lose the drag on the US economy that California has become and about 30 million welfare cases. Cut out the cancer before it kills America. And while you’re at it, give them Chicago and NYC as well.

11 million undocumented immigrants currently in the United States.

Notice how the number of undocumented immigrants illegals has shrunk. It was 12 million, it has been estimated at 20 million, and at its peak, it was probably closer to 30 million.

"Secure the border" has always been the obstacle. Of course, the first 'declaration' will be that "the borders are secure" -- but they have never defined what "secure" is.
